Part of that strategy should involve course history.
Golfers seem to play well at courses that suit their games. That can include a number of different things, including more holes that move from left-to-right or right-to-left, fast greens, narrow fairways, long vs. short holes, etc.
Augusta National is a course that demands a lot. Ball-striking is important to keep the ball in play, but a player’s short game is just as important. The greens are challenging, so if a player is struggling with his putter, it could be a long week.
Below are the players in the field who have the best career scoring averages at Augusta National (min. 25 rounds).
Most of the players on the list do not come as surprises – Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods and Bubba Watson. Also, several players are past their prime but still get to play as all past champions are invited.
